Things that are yummy

1) Homemade curry powder. Recipe stolen shamelessly from A New Way to Cook, my new favourite cookbook (recommended by the ever-wise Shona).

2) Beef curry made with said curry powder (with 1/2 tsp cayenne for a bit of heat) served with toasted organic brown short grain rice. Mmf.

3) Organic green beans topped with butter-toasted almost-burnt almond slivers (recipe, what it is, below).

I invented these when I was trying to figure out something yummy to put on random greens or mix with rice:

Butter-toasted almost-burnt almond slivers

  • 1/4c sliced or slivered almonds
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter (there’s irony here)
  • A quick grating of sea salt

Procedure: melt butter over med-low heat in a small non-stick pan. Add almonds and stir until just getting on the verge of being too brown. Add a quick grating of sea salt (really, not much). Stir a few more times, add to whatever.

Also tasty: Rosenblum Cellars 2005 California Zinfandel. Just under $20/bottle at the LCBO and worth every penny.
